RE: CLimate Or not

what you have is probably a tempmatic control system, the temperature is conroled to a setting you had set, the blower speed is controlled by the switch itself manually. for me I prefer your system since I can adjust the speed by myself. and yes its been in MB for a long time, introduced in the W126 before.

RE: CLimate Or not

So the fan never slows down?
How does it keep the set tempreture

I much prefer the system where you manually set the fan speed. My wife's climate control is fully automatic but we have it set to manual fan control; if you don't the blower keeps adjusting itself - OK at lower fan speeds but very annoying to say the least when higher fan speeds are involved. Like on hot days.

Like it does in a hotel room. Blows cooled air (your selection) at whatever fan speed you chose until temperature is reached (at whatever point it is measured). Then the compressor will cycle out and pass through non-cooled air until it warms up, and cycle repeats.
